Here are words of wisdom for young people who want to go to college because it’s safe, and “it’s what everyone else does.” Maybe you should consider starting a business and becoming an entrepreneur. Oh, but you’re afraid of failure? Well, as the wise man says:
Failure is a part of life. Better to learn it at 18 than at 23 or older when you’ve been coddled by ivory blankets and hypnotized into thinking success was yours for the taking.
If you’re afraid to fail you’ll have a harder time learning the really important stuff. Success doesn’t teach you much. And it only makes you feel egotistically good for a short time. College doesn’t even give you a chance to find real world success. College is mostly just an expensive holding cell for people who are afraid to fail. But, since most people are afraid, colleges can charge a lot for those cells.
